You may not know this about me, but I dye my hair. What can I say, I like to try new things. Blonde has been my jam for awhile now and so when Influenster asked if I would like to try and review some hair care products for bottle blondes, I jumped at the chance. Everybody loves when their hair looks extra nice and shiny!
Dessange Paris sent me shampoo, conditioner and a color corrector. I was most interested in the color corrector as it is meant to take some of the warm tones out of their and give you a cooler blonde color. My most recent foray into home hair-dying has left me with a really warm blonde, was I wasn’t expecting much. (If you’re thinking, What do warm and cool have to do with this? Think of all of the different blondes you’ve seen running from strawberry blondes to platinum blondes. The platinums have a cooler blonde; they have bluer undertones and the strawberries have a warmer blonde with more orange and yellow undertones.) Different people are into (and look good in) different things. I’ve always preferred a cooler blonde so I was eager to test something that I would help me achieve that. The color corrector is basically a purple paste that you leave in for 5-10 minutes. It infuses your hair with purples and blues and that cools down your blonde. The difference wasn’t dramatic but I would say that my hair looked less brassy after I tried it out.
The shampoo and conditioner are illuminating and I didn’t notice a difference after I used them until I went outside. In the sunlight, my hair really does look very shiny and vibrant and healthy. My only complaint with the shampoo and conditioner is that I don’t love the way the products are scented. The scent just sticks to my hair. I smell like I just stepped out of a salon and I showered more than 8 hours ago and I’ve been to the gym. You have to admire a scent that sticks that tenaciously (although I still don’t love the scent).
Dessange Paris is new to the US market and I think they’re worthwhile products. That once the weather is finally nice enough that it makes sense to be outside that I’ll be thrilled to have such shiny, vibrant-in-the-sun hair.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.by
